Australia’s loosest legends Sticky Fingers are back with their new song Outcast At Last and a trippy video to go with it. The song was released yesterday on triple J and is already got people fiending for their forthcoming album due out later this year.
The video looks like some kind of psychedelic gangster film, similar to what you would get if you mixed Fear and Loathing with Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The song itself has a heavier, more forceful sound than the sun kissed, mellow vibes of 2014’s Land of Pleasure, leaving us to wonder what we’re in store for when their new album drops. One thing that hasn’t changes is frontman Dylan Frost‘s strange but awesome head bobbing and groovy dance moves which previously featured in the video for Liquor Lip Loaded Gun.
It’s the first new music we’ve heard from the Sydney lads since they released their cover of The Specials‘ Ghost Town protesting lockout laws in their home town. In our interview with Paddy from the band, he said, “We just heard that song, I think someone was playing it in the car and we were driving through Kings Cross at the time and we were just laughing about how well-suited the soundtrack was to what we were sort of seeing, which was just the dead fucking streets of what was once a very populated and fun place to be out at night.”
After spending 2015 touring the USA, Canada, Europe, UK and New Zealand, the guys are back on home soil and embarking on a huge, already mostly sold out national tour.
